If ever there's a thread that needed a name change, this would be it.

How we did it
In an age when CGI is commonplace, this makes the commercial all the more extraordinary. Every single frame was shot over two days - with the main sequence involving a 23-man camera crew and only one chance to get it right.

An entire block was closed off and special compressed-air cannons shot the balls into the air, while earth moving equipment poured thousands down the street. Not that you'd know it from the finished product, but these balls can do some damage, so all the cars were props and crew members went so far as to having protective shields and crash helmets.

But when you get it right, you get it right. The goal at the beginning was to deliver a "really simple, visual celebration of colour". We think you'll agree the results speak for themselves.

That looks like so much fun. I actually wanted to drop those off a high floor in a hotel once, but I was afraid I'd kill someone.

I just discovered this commercial somehow while getting distracted on wikipedia. I think it's awesome. Does anyone know how to download the quicktime video? I've loaded it up several times to show it to people, but it always takes forever.

Also, there's a new advertisement for this TV: http://www.bravia-advert.com/paint/thead

That's funny, because some of the balls look distinctly CG to me in some of the shots.
